In Abingdon we don’t have access to a building – we utilise our trusty gazebo to create a space, usually on Gainsborough Green, to hold an outside drop-in session. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate is always available (Pre and Post Pandemic time) and being in the heart of the community offers us a unique chance to develop deep and meaningful discussions through activities and workshops – that’s right we make our workshops mobile!
Our sessions here cover all the topics that are important to young people from supporting rights for LGBTQ+ communities through to substance abuse and the environment.
The Caldecotte Ward in which we predominantly work within sits in the top 10% of most deprived areas of the UK because of this, we have increased our work in the area to try and reach the most disengaged young people more often.

“You was my first thought to message as he thinks a lot of you and I know he would open up to you. He see’s you as his role model.” Laura, Parent
